Born and raised in South Florida, Jeff Dekal spends much of his life producing illustrations bordering urban and uncanny. The introduction to graffiti while he was in high school gave the first serious meaning to Jeff’s art and is also where he adopted his alias, Dekal. After being educated about art history, he was inspired to stray from the characters and letters of graffiti and focus more on figurative art. Jeff’s figures can sometimes exist in an untouchable state because that status is nonexistent in this world. We are vulnerable in many ways and can be touched at any moment. Since Jeff has the ultimate control of his art though, he would rather see his figures in a timeless state as opposed to a mundane everyday type of situation.
